Following the attacks of neo-Nazi Golden Dawn deputies and members on migrant street vendors in Rafina, deputy Kostas barbarousis along with other Golden Dawn's members violently attacked migrant street vendors in the open market of Mesologi and Gavalo on September 8th, 2012 [1].

The MP said: "We fight illegal trade, we came today to see the municipal police and the police authorities proceeding to their contols, and while they were impeding, we did it ourselves. These efforts will continue because those who pay are not stupid, while some others do not pay. People encourage us and tells us to go on" [2].

The involvement of a police guard in this incident was highly criticized. The police guard, who is provided by the Police for the protection of MP Kostas Barbarousis, is shown on the relevant video to wear a T-shirt of Golden Dawn and participate in the attack against migrant street vendors [3].
